Competitive Salary

Lincoln Cathedral was consecrated in 1092 as the mother church of the Diocese of Lincoln, and over almost a millennium has continued to grow, develop and be enhanced by installations of art, glass, sculpture and furniture, and by the development of modern facilities.

Today, Lincoln Cathedral continues to be a thriving place of worship, and also a destination for many thousands of pilgrims and tourists who come to be inspired by the extraordinary architecture. Voted Britain’s Favourite Cathedral in a 2018 Twitter poll, Lincoln is a place which never fails to astonish or astound. Such a magnificent piece of medieval architecture brings its challenges, with constant requirements for repairs and conservation to stonework, medieval and Victorian glass, lead roofs and woodwork, and the expert recording of all works to the building, all by the Cathedral’s own team of almost 40 craftsmen and women. Lincoln Cathedral is the only English cathedral in its entirety to be on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk register, recognising the challenge of maintaining the building for the benefit of future generations.

Outstanding applicants are sought for this unique opportunity to direct the maintenance and enhancement of Lincoln Cathedral and its historic close of properties, overseeing the work and development of an excellent team of craftsmen and women, and being part of the Cathedral’s senior management team.

For an informal conversation, please contact the Subdean, the Revd Canon John Patrick, on 01522 561626.
